Thom Yorke & Cincinnati’s MusicNOW 2008 festival (unrelated)

24th Jan 08 (Thu) Leave a comment Go to comments

I realized as I was typing the title that… whoa, someone might take that the wrong way.  Two separate topics.  Two.  Separate.  Topics.

Thom Yorke‘s got a new solo EP on iTunes with the following tracks:

1) And It Rained All Night (Burial Remix)
2) Skip Divided (Modeselektor Remix)
3) Analyse (Various Remix)

And now for the Festival I wish I could attend, but dammit, I won’t be able to attend…

Last year’s MusicNOW Fest (reviewed by me HERE — sorry for the formatting) had a wonderful line-up including Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond, Pedro Soler, Bryce Dessner (of The National), The Clogs, The Havels, Amiina,  David Cossin, Osso… yadda yadda yadda… best show(s) of the year.

This year’s fest’s lineup has now been announced… Thursday and Friday have me drooling… I dig Bill Frisell, Eyvind Kang, and Bang on a Can a bit…
